to expand its capability to strike land targets. that is a potential threat to india, according to senior administration and congressional officials. meanwhile, there is a related store this morning on the front page of "the washington post," with this headline -- the u.s. says metrics to assess or success. -- war success. back to your calls come stan from oklahoma, is this the scary season for obama? caller: yes, it is. i think there is much to begin. as much as i was impressed with the personal tributes to senator kennedy yesterday from his family, particularly, i think there is something unseemly about the emphasis on health care bill. i know that he passionately wants to get something approved, but there is much work to be done. we cannot ignore the fact that the majority of american people do not approve of the health plan as it is now. host: let me read you something based on the republican radio address from a mike enzi. this is in both the washington post and the new york times. a republican member of the senate's gang of six healthcare negotiators sharply criticized democratic su

. furthermore when you're faced with competitors like china and india you have to have a strategy for economic growth and economic development in and time of considerable challenge. our argument is if we want to build a system of prosperous, and free future we need to create the most productive, most creative, most entrepreneurial pro-market economy that runs on smart and effective economic regulation. let me be clear, i believe that if you set out, say, what would maximize the number of entrepreneurs in america. there are ways to do that. what would maximize the number of smaller businesses created by small business? there are ways to do that. if you say, how can i have the most continuous process of innovation, we know how to do that. it just doesn't fit the political elite definition of the future, which is high tax, big bureaucracy, and politicians entered. so long term we are going to need budgetary reform legislation. in the last congress more than one dozen bills were introduced to establish entitlement and budget provisions. but all the legislation did was have the same old conversatio

scene? >> first of all, if we want to save the american manufacturing, to compete with china and india, the government needs to help manufacturing, not hammer them. this california metals co. is a good example of what has been happening. their staff is down about half. energy costs are so expensive, they start running this furnace at 9:00 at night. a report coming from the milken institute saying california has lost more than 15,000 manufacturing jobs for the last six years. why? high taxes, heavy regulation, and a hostile legislator. basically, they take scrap copper and brass here, and turn it into battle to sell to other companies. a lot of the manufacturing has been producing some bad odors down the street, so now they are asking them to retrofit some of these jobs. jane: who was your favorite character on gilligan's island? i believe you are a marianne guy. she gave her fans a chance to own television history. she auctioned off a few items from her home. why did she think that the show made such an impact on american pop culture? >> there was no time. everybody wanted to be on a i

to prevent that? i sat down with a group from india, from noorway, from iraq, and from the united states to try and figure that out. take a listen. >> what piece of advice would you give to people at home interested in this? >> i think most importantly, cancer enters your body, but you cannot let it control your life. and for us that means knowledge is power. you have to educate yourself, unity is strength, you have to have people around you to support you through this, and attitude is everything. >> you should also exercise and be physically active, you should not engage in any activity that predisposes to sexually transmitted disease. these are the key risk factors. >> and you can draw a line from reducing these activities and reducing cancer. >> oh, absolutely. as you said, one-third of all cancers is preventable. and this is the way to prevent cancers. >> is cancer a glimpse into the world of health care reform? something that we've been talking so much about in the united states? >> yeah, i think cancer is the best example or microcosm of this big debate, and the in the united state
